Take Your Child to Work Day Returns in Hybrid Format, Apr. 27

NIH’s 29th annual Take Your Child to Work Day (TYCTWD) returns Thursday, Apr. 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET.

For the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic started in 2020, TYCTWD will offer a limited number of in-person events, along with virtual and pre-recorded activities. 

All parents and their children are invited to experience in-person, hands-on experiences as a part of this year’s event, which will include Earth Day activities as well. Virtual and pre-recorded activities will be offered for remote workers and employees at other NIH locations.

All 27 institutes and centers are planning a day of discovery for children grades 1-12 to be inspired about science, technology and by experiencing the diversity of careers and research that makes the NIH a special place to work. 

Mark your calendars and be on the lookout for emails announcing the key registration days:

Mar. 20, 9 a.m.: Pre-registration (Site opens to enter child/ren’s information and preview activities only).
